    A two-way charger.

    There's a lot to be said for a pure touring set-up, but it doesn't come cheap. If striking a balance between uphill and downhill performance without breaking the bank on new boots and bindings is more your style, the Scarpa Freedom Women's Alpine Touring Boot is probably something you'll be into. The Freedom has Vibram Mountain Piste rubber soles, which are designed to function with traditional alpine DIN bindings, but can be switched out for tech soles if you decide you need improved uphill performance or your suddenly with-it grandma sends you an unexpected pair of tech bindings for your b-day. Your hiking will be golden even without super-light tech bindings, though, since the Freedom leads the women's AT boot category with a 27-degree range of cuff movement; simply switch the Ride Power Block into hike mode to disengage the cuff, or lock it down to drive the 110-flex Freedom down whatever line you've been eyeing.

    Once you're locked in, shredding the downhill is as easy as crushing the skintrack. The Freedom is built with Carbon Core Technology, which molds the lower PU shell around a carbon-fiber frame, yielding a boot that's strong and stiff without carrying any unnecessary weight, so you can drive even burly freeride skis without worrying that they'll overwhelm your boots. The upper cuff, also made of PU, is designed to accommodate women's feet and legs, with a narrower heel, lower calf, and a higher instep that work with the heat-moldable Intuition Speed Ride liner to give you a snug, warm, and comfortable fit for the whole season.

    Good down, bad up

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have the previous season's version of these but I'm fairly sure they are identical save the color and minus one buckle. I've skied maybe 30 days in these, half of which were touring. At the resort these are great - perfectly snug, warm, and responsive. Touring, my feet hate me. I have narrow feet and they gave me a big, painful bunion (6th toe) after frequent use this winter, so I had to punch them out pretty significantly. Even after punching, my feet are in extreme pain after a full day of touring. They are so heavy and bulky, I'm sure half of my energy expenditure is lost to the weight of these beasts. If you stick to the resort and want to be able to tour a handful of times in a year, these are great. Just swap out the soles and presto, you have touring boots. If you tour frequently, or don't want to risk deforming your feet, go with something lighter. I know I will!

    So would you say the Gea is the way to go? Have you ever had those? I'm trying to decide on a new pair of touring boots, mostly to be used in resort side-country. I have a full alpine setup too, but was a little worried about the Gea being too wimpy for the downs.

    To Mary C. -- I don't have the Scarpa Gea's, but those look pretty similar to the men's Maestrales, and similar weight (3 lbs per boot vs. 4.5 for each of the Freedom!). They seem very versatile and I've never heard anything about them being wimpy. If you already have a resort boot, I would guess that the Gea would be a much better option if you want something lighter for touring but don't want to lose downhill performance like I hear you would with a Dynafit or something really minimalist. But I can't tell you from experience! :)
